St. Meinrad Parish to celebrate feast dayJanuary 15, 2019
ST. MEINRAD — St. Meinrad Parish will celebrate the feast day of its patron, St. Meinrad, on Sunday, Jan. 20. Mass will be celebrated at 8:30 a.m. CT followed by a parish social and complimentary breakfast in the St. Meinrad Community Center.
Pastor Fr. Anthony Vinson, OSB, will give the feast-day homily focusing on holiness and hospitality found in the Christian vocation.
The parish was founded on Jan. 21, 1861, the feast of the martyr St. Meinrad, a monk known for his extraordinary charity and hospitality in what is now known as Einsiedeln, Switzerland. Jan. 21, 1861, also was the 1,000th anniversary of the death of the martyr Meinrad.
Eight days after the parish founding, the new German Catholic settlement was established as the town of St. Meinrad.
The feast day celebration will include other activities and door prizes sponsored by the parish Heritage Committee, chaired by Nancy Graman.
